I moved to Mountain View a six months ago for an engineering job at Google, which is a very exciting career change for me and hopefully gives me a better chance to change the world.
My parents are environmental scientists and I grew up in rural Australia as a shy boy who liked catching animals. I'll always keep those small-town, old-fashion values but life is too short to be shy anymore. Friends describe me as funny, laid-back and a gentleman. If I had just three words to choose myself I'd go with honest, playful and affectionate - the rest you'd have to figure out yourself.
I have many passions, but up the top of the list are: nature(bush-walking/hiking, camping and spotlighting), sport (soccer, touch football and tennis), music, travelling, trying new things, writing online articles (how many you'll never guess), art, comedy and.... wait for it... dancing. I’m good enough at Latin dance that I can teach a girl the basics of salsa in ten minutes flat, but I’m certainly no professional and frankly I don’t really want to be - I go for exercise and the love of music. :)
I'm also a very neat and organized person who's very excited to live in my own apartment facing a koi pond and I'm thrilled that I can finally use my weekends to have fun and explore this place! I already have a few favorite hiking trails you should ask me about! :)
